The internet is run by cats. Now your phone can be, too.
A dose of fuzzy snark. Scrambled up. Can you unscramble these guys? Has there ever been a cuter cat game? Has a puzzle game had more LOLz?
Pictures of cats have been shared online as early as since the days of Usenet through newsgroups like rec.pets.cats, which offered a variety of answers to general questions people have about raising cats. The group’s FAQs were originally written in 1992 and released online in four parts over the span of nearly three years. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the introduction of personal blogging and consumer-grade digital cameras charted a new era of animal photo blogs and cat puzzle games across the world, particularly in Japan where cats are generally considered the most favored pet animal. Daily photo and video journals of domesticated cats soon became a staple genre of blogging on the Japanese web, compounded by the advents of leaderboard-style blog ranking sites, as well as technological innovations in digital cameras and video recorders.
In the English-speaking online communities, pictures of cats became a recurring topic on memetic hubs like the B3TA Forum, Metafilter, General Mayhem, Something Awful, 4chan and FARK, just to name a few popular cat puzzle games. Pictures of cats were also spread through chain e-mail networks, the most notable pre-LOLcat example being “Everytime you masturbate, God kills a kitten” (included in this cat puzzle game). Some of the early adopters in the blog world include MyCatHatesYou, a single topic blog dedicated to cat photos since 2000, Rathergood, an internet culture site launched by B3ta forum member Joel Veitch in 2000, and the Infinite Cat Project, a blog that curates pictures of cats looking at another cat, that began in 2004.
If there has ever been a better cat puzzle game, we haven't found it.
